First it is pertinent to set some background and context to these current developmentsin EU civil justice taking into account the institutional perspective. Indepicting the state of play, the various strands of civil justice will first bebriefly presented (section 2.1). Thereafter, the result of the institutional positionsand regulatory choices made so far will be analysed (section 2.2). Thesepractices and choices have led to the fragmented landscape of EU civil justicethat we have today. This fragmentation in itself can be a trigger factor thatoccasions calls for further harmonisation. However, there are additionalostensible pressure and trigger factors for harmonsation that will be presented(section 3), namely: (i) mutual trust, (ii) the rule of law, and (iii) soft law.Against this backdrop it will be possible to analyse whether any institutionaland regulatory changes are likely to emerge in the potential harmonization crossroads(section 4).

Abstract [en]

Cross-border disputes are an unavoidable corollary to transnational free movement in the EU:s internal market, based on the four economic freedoms of free movement of goods, services, people and capital. Nevertheless, EU competence in the field of civil justice was established only in 1999. The Union has since taken considerable measures aimed to both facilitate cross-border judicial cooperation and to create common procedures. However, the policy area has so far not been able to fulfill its ambitions. Full mutual recognition of judgments between member states has encountered challenges where the goal of effective enforcement clashes with fundamental rights. In addition, because of cultural differences between the member states and the limitations of the EU competence, the development in the field has been criticized for being fragmented. The chapter describes a policy area that is growing fast and still struggling to find its identity.

Abstract [en]

How to understand and deal with the principle of mutual trust, its emanations, interpretations, and imperatives has in recent years become one of the central and most critical issues in the development of the Area of Freedom Security and Justice (AFSJ). Civil justice may be the dark horse with respect to mutual trust among the policy areas of the AFSJ in the sense that it may show useful but hitherto hidden possibilities and have an un-tipped winning strategy. In particular, the balancing safeguards in legislation, the importance of which have been confirmed in case law, are important to ensure the fundamental right to a fair trial. However, that does not mean that mutual trust does not pose challenges in the context of civil justice. Hence, it remains important to focus on how—normatively, and by which regulatory means—to support mutual trust as well as how to balance, and perhaps limit, its implementation in order to enhance its legitimacy. In addition, the recent pressures towards harmonisation need to be carefully analysed.

Abstract [en]

The chapter seeks to address the intersections  between e-justice, innovation and the EU and analyse how they relate to each other in the European procedural landscape of today. The intersections are in dynamic development. Thus, it will not be possible to deal with all possible threads of analysis. However, the hope is that the chapter will shed further light on the on-going developments and highlight some important questions.

Abstract [sv]

EU-rätten påverkar processrätten numera på många olika sätt. Man kan likna denna påverkan vid tentakler eftersom den sträcker sig längre in i rättssystemet och processrätten än vad många kanske anar och gör så genom olika armar eller spår av reglering. Under de senaste åren kan man också säga att påverkan har fördjupats och intensifierats och det finns faktorer som tyder på att denna utveckling fortsätter även i framtiden. Även om författaren kommer att fokusera på den civilprocessuella utvecklingen kan delar av analys vara analogt relevanta för straffprocessrätten. Målsättningen är att i detta bidrag belysa och granska EU-rättens påverkan på den nationella processrätten från ett holistiskt makroperspektiv.

Abstract [en]

The perspective taken in the contribution is broader than consumer dispute resolution and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) encompassing EU law developments in civil justice and the impact that the EU has on civil procedure and dispute resolution as a whole. The aim is to thereby provide to a broader perspective on the current development of ADR in the EU. The particular aim is to highlight two issues. First, when the EU acts to create special rules for consumer dispute resolution and ADR, the whole dispute resolution system, i.e., the whole entity of EU civil justice, needs to be taken into account in order to achieve a regulatory coherent and efficient justice system. Second, certain weaknesses have been identified in using ADR as a regulatory choice in order to achieve effective enforcement of law and efficient access to justice. It is posited that these findings should be remembered and taken into account when the EU further develops ADR both generally and in particular for consumer matters.

Abstract [en]

The long-awaited ruling in Gazprom deals with the complex intersection between arbitration and the Brussels I Regulation, the flagship regulation of EU civil justice. The much-debated reform of the Regulation and in particular its "arbitration exclusion" following the judgment of the Court of Justice in West Tankers, relating to anti-suit injunctions in support of arbitration, formed the backdrop to the ruling in Gazprom. The Court reaffirmed the judgment in West Tankers and confirmed that anti-suit injunctions are contrary to the mutual trust between courts in the EU. However, the circumstances in Gazprom, an arbifral award including an order prohibiting a party from bringing certain claims in court, did not fall within the scope of the Brussels I Regulation. Thus the ruling can be seen as a small victory for arbitration.
